I am often asked about the Bible.  Is it really reliable? Many people say that the Bible and especially the New Testament is just myth written by the Romans to consolidate power.  If you have heard this I want you to consider something. The ancient myths were often written 500 or even 1000 years after the events that they were proposing to describe but much of the New Testament was written only 20 -30 years after the time of Christ.  When the New Testament writers were writing about the work of Christ, his miracles, and his resurrection they were writing these things in the time of Eye Witnesses. In 1 Corinthians 15 the apostle Paul told his readers about a group of 500 eye witnesses of the resurrection that the Corinthians could go and ask about seeing Jesus after he was killed.  There is no way these documents would have gotten off the ground unless they were true, they were written too soon to be myth…
